Oakland underground rhyme veteran Del The Funky Homosapien still gets busy. Today (April 20), the Hieroglyphics member teams up with producer Amp Live on the new LP, Gate 13.

The album contains the singles "Humble Pie," "Help" featuring Adult Karate and "Wheel of Fortune," the LP's second song where Del sets the tone early on over busy production.

"Straight from the gate, I'm gassin'/Dribbling, not from glasses/Hacking I'm not gon' pass it/Foul, get an elbow to match it," he spits. "Settle the racket, sit at the bottom and lay/Just like a ship in a bottle that's the model they faced."

The duo have a straight-forward approach with the 16-song project. “13 represents bad luck," Del says, explaining the title. "Basically, we’re the baddest out. This is a gateway to how we do.”

Del, who is Ice Cube's cousin, continues his prolific career, which started in 1991 with the album I Wish My Brother George Was Here. Most recently, in 2016, Del put out The Doors EP with The Understudies. Iller Than Most, which dropped in 2014, serves as his previous solo LP.
